Taught all day today!
Made myself eggnog coffee this morning
Had some toast with cream cheese, plus an unpictured apple for breakfast
And, awesomely came home from work to realize i never turned the oven off from making my toast.
One of these days I’m going to burn down the house.
I packed a lunch ahead of time, which means it was only a little pitiful
Cheese and whole grain ritz, yogurt with some agave and pumpkin pie spices, and granola. Plus crack oranges.
We’re leaving for Thanksgiving tomorrow, and wanna know something?
So not excited.
I’ve never had thanksgiving anywhere but my parents house. Like, NO WHERE else. Not even down the street and still in my home town or anything.
And we’ve gotten emails from the fiance’s fam about food…. and it makes me less and less excited.
There’s Cool Whip on the menu.
And, um, deer?
And NO rutabagas
I’m kinda getting the vibe only veggies covered in stuff are being served (candied yams, green bean casserole).
I know I’m totally spoiled but I am pouting about the whole pumpkin pie being made from canned pumpkin (which, btw kids, isn’t pumpkin, it’s dickinson squash. Google it and tell me if that looks like a pumpkin to you)
And no blackberry pie, made from berries we grew.
And I’m just bummed I’m not going out sock shopping with my family (And Sarah Palin stalking!)
And I’m getting this all out of my system now so I don’t spend the trip pouting :-)
Anyone else wanna complain about the holidays?
Or tell me how they leave the oven on so that I feel like I’m not the only one?
